Restaurant chain Taco John’s signs development deal to bring 12 new locations to Central Kentucky

Taco John’s and its iconic Potato Olés are coming to Central Kentucky. The Mexican quick-service brand is bringing its fresh ingredients and bold flavors to at least 12 new locations across the state.

“I’m from Western Kentucky where everyone loves eating at Taco John’s,” said new Area Developer, Bradley Paxton. “This opportunity is a perfect fit for my business partner and I and a great use of our management experience. We admire the rapid growth of the brand and its loyal following. We believe bringing Taco John’s to central Kentucky is a smart business decision and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
